I am a DONA-certified birth doula, Lamaze-certified childbirth educator, and the owner of The Uma Center, a community resource and education center focused on childbirth, parenting and women's health and wellness in Moscow, Idaho. I also have a doctorate degree in Child Psychology, and I spent 10 years as a tenured faculty member at Washington State University prior to becoming a birth professional.
